    Abstract. An extremely halophilic archaeon, previously named as Haloferax sp. strain Aa 2.2 or "Haloferax alicantei" that has been extensively used for genetic studies with halobacteria, was taxonomically characterized by using phenotypic tests (including morphological, physiological,...

    Background: DNA ligases are required for DNA strand joining in all forms of cellular life. NAD+-dependent DNA ligases are found primarily in eubacteria but also in some eukaryotic viruses, bacteriophage and archaea. Among the archaeal NAD+-dependent DNA ligases is the LigN enzyme of the...

    The halophilic archaeon Haloferax volcanii has a multireplicon genome, consisting of a main chromosome, three secondary chromosomes, and a plasmid. Genes for the initiator protein Cdc6/Orc1, which are commonly located adjacent to archaeal origins of DNA replication, are found on all replicons...

    Extreme halophiles belonging to the domain Archaea require a minimum of ~10% NaCl for growth. Many of these obligate halophiles will continue to grow even as NaCl concentrations approach saturation. The haloarchaeon Haloferax volcanii is a model organism in which to study the effects of changes...

    N-glycosylation is a post-translational modification performed by members of all three domains of life. Studies on the halophile Haloferax volcanii have offered insight into the archaeal version of this universal protein-processing event. In the present study, AglQ was identified as a novel...

    Three pigmented strains of halophilic archaea (RS75, RS77, RS79) were isolated from the monoliths of mottled sylvinite from the Verkhnekamsk salt deposit (Solikamsk, Russia). The cells were nonmotile, gram-negative, pleomorphic, disk-shaped or ovoid, 0.8-1.0 × 1.5-2.5 μm. The organism was...

    We report the sequencing of seven genomes from two haloarchaeal genera, Haloferax and Haloarcula. Ease of cultivation and the existence of well-developed genetic and biochemical tools for several diverse haloarchaeal species make haloarchaea a model group for the study of archaeal biology. The...

    The halophilic euryarchaeon Haloferax volcanii can grow anaerobically by DMSO respiration. DMSO reductase was induced by DMSO respiration not only under anaerobic growth conditions but also in denitrifying cells of H. volcanii.
